​Baby Needs New Shoes

This song is by Restless Heart and appears on the album Matters Of The Heart (1994).

I've got a small house and an old car
When it gets cold, it just won't start
I've got a steady job and a pension plan
Don't know where the money goes but it's out of my hands

I've got two kids and bills to pay
My wife just told me there's another on the way
Seems I make just enough to stay in debt
But I haven't given up on making it yet

I've gotta work hard to live right
Stay loose when the times get tight
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do
Oh, baby needs new shoes

Politician talking on the TV
Don't mean nothing to a guy like me
I voted for the left, I voted for the right
When you're stuck in the middle, no one's on your side

You've gotta work hard to live right
Stay loose when the times get tight
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do
Oh, baby needs new shoes

These days, it's sink or swim
But I'll keep treading water
Until my ship comes in

You've gotta work hard to live right
Stay loose when the times get tight
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do
Oh, baby needs new shoes

Work hard to live right
Stay loose when the times get tight
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do
Oh, baby needs new shoes
